Yes, I was prepared to be busy during retirement, but the one thing I didn't realize is how FAST the days would pass. I want to be busier than I am, but still don't seem to have enough time! Tomorrow we go back to hubby's surgeon in Sioux Falls for his post surgery follow-up. He is doing well! It's about 2 1/2 hour drive each way, so will be a long day. Beautiful day - I need to get outside for a walk!

Good Morning All, Still fighting tired and not getting in enough activity. Not doing well with my weight and am where I promised myself I'd never be again. That's a downer. I'm 99% sure it's the heart meds. We did try reducing the most likely and within a day my heart was racing again. All numbers returned to a normal safe place as soon as I resumed them; so they are needed. But it slows me down and weakens my resolve. I track everything so I know I'm eating too much and not moving enough. Will continue to work on it. On the plus side, I'm mobile, independent, move through my days normally, enjoy my GGS time, enjoy life, not "sick" and not in real pain. It's more like I overdid the exercise yesterday---but I didn't. To anyone else looking at my life or my medical charts; I look fine. Really strange; that said, I'm grateful for all the pluses and so many things that are returning to normal as I reduce the prednisone. I have a good chance of being off it completely by the end of the year. I think I will get out in the yard to work today and once I get going -- it's all good. Smiles.

Susan it's good to hear of you moving in such a positive direction.
Caz, I hope all is going well for you and yours. Take it a step at a time.
Verna, So glad you are back! I love the new profile picture! Radiates healthy and happy!
Cat, My hat is off to you! I tried biking when my kids were young but it was just too hilly for me and I didn't have the money then to invest in a good bike. Love the one you chose but it's not something I would tackle now (for me). It's still too hilly here. Get those bike shorts and a helmet; a big part of success is having the right equipment and taking it slowly.
Patti, Good Morning! I admire your consistency and am glad you are here.
Mayie, You sell yourself short, I don't know how you do all that you do. You are such a blessing to your community.
Judy, You have to admit; we told you you would not have a lot of "free" time when you retired! But, isn't it great?!
Anne, I hope the new job is going great!
Missing so many, Suzie did weather the FL storms; tracked her down. She's been busy reporting on places victims of the storm and responders can find to eat in her area. Amazing and wonderful how everyone steps up and does what they can to help.
Hi too to everyone I missed, hope to hear from you soon. Great day everyone!

Hi Ladies, I am off to visit my mom this morning for a couple of hours before heading to the Wellness Center for my water therapy. I had another good night of sleeping through and pain continues to be minimal throughout the day unless I have a sudden move.

Feeling positive about life again and looking forward to the next stage in 9 weeks when my baby great granddaughter is due to be born.

I got a phone call from the monument place where we bought the headstone for my sons grave, It was taken to the cemetery yesterday so will stop in to see if they installed it yet. I am happy that it will be in before his birthday which he would have been 41 September 29th. I miss him so much!

Wishing all you lovely ladies and friends a great day. emoticon

The weather has changed again and as a result I'm experiencing a lot of aches and pains. Trying the ol' distraction technique of reading instead of focusing on the joints. Seems to work until I stand up and try to move. Lol Planning on sitting tight this evening. Tomorrow is another day.

Hi all. Good to see so many happy voices here today.
Good news on your winning horse, Verna. And a productive garden.
How do you store your carrots and potatoes over the winter?
Some times I just let my carrots stay in the ground with dirt mounded up over the tops. I did the same with my potatoes a couple times and loved digging them throughout the winter and spring.
One year I left some in by mistakes and had a whole new crop!
I bought the bike today and will pick it up Thursday after they put on the fenders.
Giant Liv Suede II. It has a 'decent' seat but I know I will replace it with a gel seat after I have some butt time on it. Wish me luck!

Hello Ladies

It's still busy in my world and the weather is lovely. Cooler than it was but lovely just the same. Cleared the garden of most of the plants but still some carrots and potatoes to dig. I have enough of both to last us the winter so called one of the kids to come and dig. They will be out on Sunday after church I'm so smart-----getting out of some work which has the added joy of a nice visit and likely lunch or dinner!!! Better that they get the food than leaving it all for the birds and critters. There are plenty of cucumbers and sunflowers for the birds to enjoy too. I suspect I will have sunflowers all over the garden next year. And dill. Prolific little devils!! I also found more peas on the ground that have ripened and dried on the plants. I got the brain wave to plant them for next year. Every year I have a volunteer pea plant here and there so I thought I might as well put them in a row and see what happens. I will report on that in the spring!! If I can find some sweet pea seeds in a store I will plant them in one of my many flower gardens too.

Nice to see that your pain is slowly easing up Susan, glad to hear that.

Caz hope your appointment went well for the botox.

Cat, I hate the bikes at the gym so sure won't be buying one to ride the great outdoors on. I have a stationery downstairs and very seldom get on it but maybe a gel seat would entice me or maybe those riding shorts Jeri spoke of. Never heard of them but I'm sure one of the sports stores around carries them.

Mayie, I guess autumn has hit the "Peg". You have the right idea, jackets and long pants are called for when outdoors now, although I intend on wearing capris as soon as I get home from the gym and getting my hair cut. I'm late getting out of the house today but the laundry is done and things cleaned up in the kitchen, bathroom and livingroom at least.

Joy, I'm sure you are doing one thing or another today as always. GGS must be entertaining you today!!

Hi to everyone not mentioned by name. Have a wonderful day everyone.

The weather here has been back and forth - very warm days and then cool, damp days. Today is the latter. Yesterday I got in a 3 miles walk and then played pickleball. We're still playing outdoors, so can only play until it gets too dark or the mosquitoes drive us away! Yesterday I remembered that I had kept my old Fitbit, so I was able to find it this morning and have it charging now. Not sure if it will work or not. I need to decide what kind of replacement I want to get and then order it. I do like the clip-on type as I'm sure I wouldn't wear the watch-type one as often, as the clip is just easier to stick on your bra and then it doesn't get in the way of anything. Need to get moving now. Think a bit of cleaning is on the agenda today.

I had another good night sleep . Had a bit of discomfort this morning but did some shoulder exercises and have ice on it now. Pain is not too bad (about a 2.5) but it will get better as the day goes on and I become more active. Just finished using my stationary bike and waiting for hubby to return home so I can get out for a power walk to start the day.

I have a dentist appointment for cleaning this afternoon and if the sun stays out hubby and I will take the dogs on a 3 mile hike when I get back.

Jeri, I never thought about bike shorts when I was riding but you are right, they would be great as well.

Gotta scoot now and get moving moving moving
Have a great day everyone.

Good morning! **Yawn** I had weird dreams last night. Not bad dreams, but weird and vivid. I didn't get much sleep because of my weird dreams. I got up early this morning to work out, but my workout was pretty lame.Mostly arm and core, which desperately need toning, but I barely got my heart rate up.

Cat, definitely get a bike!! I don't use a gel seat. I wear bike shorts. Either way, you need protection for your butt and your lady parts. Just make sure the bike is a good fit for you.

Hi girlfriends
Joy I hear you about making the effort and pushing through when you're dead-beat to get over it. I did the same yesterday and felt better for it. Actually slept well- haven't been the last few days. Glad I did as I have Jackie and Steve today.
Judy emoticon on raising so much, marvellous
Maye It makes you wonder what some peoples' homes are like when they can't be bothered to wipe their feet and show a little consideration for others. emoticon
Cat I think Steve and Jackie have bought the rain with them. It was lovely here Thursday, but since Friday (when they travelled up) it's been tipping it down here.
I can see you in bike leathers!!! emoticon
Susan good to see you using the "distraction therapy" I wish I'd thought to mention it to you before, it was something that was taught to me by my neurologist for when my dystonia got bad. They also employ it when I have my reflexes checked in my legs- they get me to hold my elbows with opposite hands and push. It's the only way they can get my leg reflex to work emoticon emoticon As you said the brain IS an amazing organ
.

Okay gotta go and get stuck in , in the kitchen

Enjoy your day emoticon

Hello everyone,
today I almost felt "normal" again. My pain today stayed at a one after a good night sleep. I discovered a way to sleep more comfortably and I account for the less pain due to that and getting a full night in without waking in pain.

I went to the therapeutic pool today and did an hour of physio therapy and I also rode the stationary bike in the pool. They have all sorts of equipment there for me to use to gain back my strength and heal the injuries in my shoulder and when I left today I felt successful and happy that my pain had not returned because of the workout.

Tonight I was so pleased with myself I went out power walking for 3.25 miles for 52 minutes. Not my fastest but I am just getting my strength and energy back. Pain seems to really make you tire quickly for some reason. I also discovered a way to NOT feel any pain although it is only temporary . I found that if I am coloring, I don't feel pain. I have no idea why because the pain will return the moment I walk away from doing it. When I go back to it, the pain stops.
The brain is an amazing organ and I imagine that using the bright colors and not having to concentrate must relax me enough to divert attention away from the pain.

I pray this day is the beginning of many more painless days ahead. Of course the shoulder still hurts a great deal with any movement that isn't choreographed but I try to be mindful throughout the day.

Joy, I hope your energy will return but I have to say that you sure got enough fitness in in spite of the drop in energy. Good for you!

CAT, I love bike riding and will give you a heads up if you do purchase one. Get a good gel seat for the bike to keep your tail bone healthy. When I was riding a few years ago I developed coxadinia so bad but when I got the good gel seat, it was healed up quickly.

Mayie, we had cooler temps for two weeks before the last weekend when all of a sudden it turned hot like summer again. Considering we had a wet cool summer, the heat, sun and dryness has been a welcome change. I like the cooler temps however for walking. Glad the rain has stopped for you.

Judy that is so good that they keep the most of the money collected in the community for cancer patients. Is the baby shower for a new grand baby coming for you. I think I remember you talking about a new grand baby a while back. In less than 9 weeks my great granddaughter is due to be born. Such an exciting time when babies come into the family. Lost of smiles.

CAZ, hope your shoulder is not causing you too much pain.

Jeri, did you run today in this great weather?

Hi Patti and anyone I may have missed.

It sure feels good to be able to sit long enough to read the posts and respond.
Have a great evening everyone. emoticon

Hi all.
Raining now a nice soaking rain. The plants all need it.
I test drove a bike today. I have been thinking of getting one and since we are living in somewhat flat area now it might work out. But, $500 is a lot to spend so I want to go back and test drive a few more and see if I really want to do this.
Yesterday I made chix soup and we are having it again tonight. It was really good.

Dealing with cooler temps but thankfully not the rain we've had for almost a week. Winter jackets and long pants to keep the chill off and some activities held indoors instead of out. Had a tree dedication and annual church picnic yesterday but forced to eat inside due to the chilly winds. That means lots and lots of mud to clean off the carpets this week since people seem to have forgotten to wipe their feet or remove muddy footwear. It's usually, but not exclusively, the younger generation that either haven't been taught or don't really care. Seems to be quite prevalent in the church I attend and it really doesn't help to be told "It is what it is." Oh well. Have enough stuff of my own to deal with so putting the church cleaning on hold for later in the week.
JOY: I so wish I could send you some lovely energy but alas, I have none to spare. Hugs.

The Friday elementary cancer walk was delayed by an hour, but we did get it in. About 200 kids and they raised almost $4,000 to contribute to our organization. The unique thing about our organization is that all but 25% of the amount raised stays in our county to help assist cancer patients with expenses not covered by insurance, travel, wigs, medication, etc. The remaining 25% is given for research. The big Walk of Hope on Saturday was moved inside of a school and went well from what I heard. I hated to miss, but the baby shower could not be missed! Need to get active today, as I've been spending far too much time sitting on my behind lately!!

Good Morning All, It's sounding like we are all having beautiful weather! That's pretty amazing. Had a strange day yesterday, still fighting not having energy. Did not go out and enjoy the day; but pushed myself and got my 126 fitness minutes in (hooping, walking, cleaning). And did a really good cleaning of my family room, re-arranging the furniture a little. Needed the feeling of accomplishment and I think pushing the activity is the only way for me to get past this slump. Can't handle the heat, sun, bugs outdoors right now. Hoping cooler weather will help. We'll see. Taking one day at a time. Enjoy the day everyone. Having dinner with a friend later today. Smiles.

Greetings all.
Got a late start to my day today for some reason.
We went grocer shopping then home for chores.
Started out for a walk and got half a block before it started raining so we headed home.
I'll try again later.
Busy week coming up.

Good Morning All.
Having a beautiful weekend here! Yesterday was fun, but I didn't get in the walking I was hoping for. My friend was having difficulty walking on the uneven ground so we didn't stay at the fair long. Drove around sight seeing a lot and that was fun and good visit time. Stopped for lunch and it was a really nice day. DGD and DGS have bounced back from the FP so all is well there. Hoping to bathe and groom Sugar today. Holding off on clearing the garden until we have a cold snap to zap the bugs. Mosquitoes really attack me out there. Price we pay for having a wet summer. Everything is lush and green too. Beautiful Sunday and all is well. Hugs.

Hi girls

Joy sorry to hear about the FP, hope everyone feels over it by the time you read this. Glad you enjoyed the Fair/
Judy did the event go ahead, hope so, would be such a shame to have it rained off.
Cat an Jeri sounds like a plan to me. more of less what I did yesterday - I was a whirling dervish getting the place blitz before John and Vicki came last night and all is prepared for Jackie and Steve when they come on Tuesday, really looking forward to seeing them both.

Rest day today, exhausted after yesterday and my shoulder is complaining that I over worked it so a gentle workout then feet up.

Hi all.
It was fun to read Verna's last post and knowing she is having fun traveling and keeping busy.

Thanks JERI, I'm back. What a gorgeous day!! It turned out to be an Antique Fair; nothing I need (have a lot I should get rid of) but fun to look. I love looking at old utensils and tools and try to figure out what they are used for. i.e. A cork press, OK, why?? Smiles. The ground was very uneven and my friend was having difficulty walking so we didn't stay long. Drove around exploring the new neighborhoods around Masterson Station--I can't get over how that area has grown. Then went to lunch at a new restaurant in Meadowthorpe. Good food; but very pricey. Overall a very nice day; have missed spending time with this friend since her husband retired. Glad we were able to connect. Yard is calling but I can't handle working in the sun. Will try and get out there awhile this evening.

Good morning!
Joy, have fun at the arts fair!

I'm finally getting around to emptying our suitcases from vacation. We got in late Monday, and I went to work early Tuesday morning. The trip was great, but so exhausting!! Today I can finally relax and unwind, and casually take care of thing around the house.

I haven't been receiving notifications that people visited my blog. I just now looked and found comments there. Thank you for reading :-)

The only good thing about food poisoning is that it usually doesn't last long! We're getting some rain and wind right now, so not sure of the status of the cancer walk for the school kids, as it's an outdoor event. For now, we're hoping that the rain is over by the time we start at 1:00.

Good Morning All, Beautiful day here now that the fog has cleared and supposed to be a beautiful weekend. I'm going to make a big batch of veggie chili this morning to use up tomatoes and peppers from the garden. Get it in the crock pot then head out to the garden this afternoon; pruning and clearing. Will get in a good walk today too. No little guy today. He was punk yesterday, came in waves and did better in the afternoon. Kept it low key and had fun with a flashlight.


I'm still fine and his Grandpa is fine. I think he had food poisoning from a birthday party Tuesday evening. His Mom got violently ill last night and was ill all night. Wiped out but calmed down this morning--she did not go to work. (So, he is not here today, I suspect both will sleep a lot today as they were up a lot last night.) Several other adults from the party have also been ill. I suspect the chicken salad but can't be sure. Not something he would eat but he's pretty good about tasting things or something might have touched it. He was not as sick as his mom. My experience with FP is that the size of the person and amount ingested are relevant to the reaction time and severity.

Keeping busy, working on active but fighting tired most of the time. Just hoping that gets better. Hard to describe as I don't feel "bad or ill" just like my body and limbs are weighted, not fat, heavy. Like every step is uphill. Oh well, certainly could be worse! Have a great weekend everyone! It's fall festival time! emoticon

Hi girls
Patti it's almost the weekend
Joy I hope he's okay and that whatever it is it ISN'T contagious. You're doing well.
Susan just read your blog hun and commented on there, it's good that you're seeing some improvement but yes, I understand your frustration too. NO one likes to have physical limitations and pain thrust upon them. Take care and keep that shoulder mobile babe.
Judy sounds like you have a busy weekend ahead, enjoy both events - hope the charity raises a good some on donations.
Cat My thoughts exacty, enjoy the garden, walks, the fresh air as we'll all be confined to barracks come the cold wet days.
Maye I have a certain regular walk too, but it is nice to have company now and again.


Well I shall be extra busy tomorrow getting the place ready for the Royal Visit (friend Jackie coming up for a visit) emoticon so won't be posting tomorrow. Have a great Saturday everyone emoticon get out there while the going is good emoticon

Oooooooh so cold here today. Really should have worn a sweater and long pants but did not realize the morning was so chilly. Had some 'free' time this afternoon and went for a walk with a new friend. I am usually so task oriented that all my walking consists of getting from Point A to Point B. It was enjoyable to just walk along, talking and listening to another individual speak. Coffee and a cookie then home for some much needed me time.

As usual, you ladies are all so busy.

We all need to be out and about as much as possible now as it will not be long before we won't be able to as much with cold and that wet stuff.
Today has been busy and started at the gym.
More tomorrow..
Take care all.

Another beautiful morning in Minnesota, but sounds like the autumn chilliness and rain will soon be upon us. Have things to get done today, as tomorrow my cancer walk team is going to be conducting an elementary school walk where the kids raise funds for the cause, so I'll help with then head to Fargo, as Saturday is the baby shower for my soon-to-be grandson and I'm so excited for that! Two of my sisters will be there and it will be fun to see them. I have to be back Saturday night so I can play for church Sunday morning, so will be a quick trip, but will get to see daughter, granddaughters, daughter-in-law and her family, as well as my 2 sisters, so that will be fun!

Good Morning Ladies,

its a beautiful day out there today and soon I will go to the therapeutic pool to work out with my shoulder. The cortisone shot I had helped somewhat but I still have pain all day that travels from the shoulder to my hand which does indicate nerve damage. The only treatment for this other than nerve blocks (drastic measure) is physical therapy which I continue with at home 3 times a day and the pool every second day. My pain at mosyt times is tolerable but by the end of thr day I feel so frustrated.

I know that by this time next year, I will be able to look back on this and just say "Thank goodness that's over" and it keeps me going to continue on my healthy journey.

Joy I know what you are feeling about needing the fitness to keep your weight down. I refuse to "diet" but I do my best to always eat healthy and keep the snacks from enticing me. My weight is still my original goal weight and I don't want it to go any higher. I am always striving to keep it down and I am still striving to take a few off. With summer at an end now, the ice cream cones after dinner and the wine with barbecues has also come to an end.

The next event we will have is not until Thanksgiving which is October 9th and I hope that I will have dropped a few pounds by then. I did get out for a 7 mile power walk the other day and I even did a slight bit of easy running. I can't do the running much because of the bouncing that hurts the shoulder but if I go easy, I am okay. It felt good and gave me hope that I will be in good shape to run the half marathon come next June.

Well I have to move and do my shoulder exercises but wanted to check in and wish eveyone here a great day. emoticon

Well today I am once again sitting up front. This time it has been a little longer than yesterday. It is not a good day for me to be sitting up front for too long. We are having a ceremony a little later on today and I need to get things ready for it. I can't do that sitting here all day. I am looking at the bright side though, I will be teleworking tomorrow and won't be covering the front office. I had already told them that last week. We shall see what happens.

Good Morning All! Up early (for me) today. Probably because I went to bed earlier, just doesn't seem to work but I fell right to sleep, so needed it. Just can't stretch it past 6 hours! Urgh! Little guy is coming this morning, then going to the Dr. at noon. Running a fever and punk, might be a sore throat. If he's contagious--well, that die has been cast yesterday. We'll see, haven't heard from his Mom yet this morning.

Weight stayed the same this week; never thought that would make me happy at 10# over goal---but it does. That upward creep has been getting me down, scary. This weight is not bad but the fear of going back up to 240 is! It's just hard for me to be as active as I need to be and although I willingly make healthy choices; I refuse to "diet". Life is too short. I have to do it by being active--for so many reasons. The hooping is helping, not weather related, aerobic and I can do it inside. My core isn't sore anymore, thankfully. That wasn't from the hooping, from the meds--I think.
Anyway. Today's a good day. Smiles.

Hi gals:

It has been one heck of a summer for us. Travelling sometimes with my lap top other times not as there were several times WiFi wasn't available or I was just too darn busy having fun to even log on. Oh yeah then there were the 2 days the kitchen sink wasn't draining, which of course happened on a weekend. Did I lose any weight?? Are you kidding?? Wine, especially chocolate wine puts on weight not take it off!! Then there were all those snackies lying around while drinking wine ---- disaster in the making LOL We were home for a day here and there which were extremely busy for me to make relish and freeze corn etc. DH helped with taking the kernels off the cobs and peeled the cucumbers for the relish so that was a great help. Because we didn't get any rain July or August and we were away most of that time there wasn't too much surplus to give away.

Anyway I finally got to the gym on Monday, Tuesday was dr. appt. and tomorrow is cardiologist. Friday we are off to Edmonton and area again for the weekend and will go to the track to see the 2 year old filly run. She has been doing pretty good. Raced 3 times and twice in the money so that's a huge plus, some credit on the books instead of debits!! Today is gardening day again, time to bring in the goodies as well as the tender houseplants I stuck outside for the summer. They need to be brought in today as the temp is going to drop to freezing. Guess I will have to continue in the drizzle that has been happening off and on all day so far.

Hoping those suffering pain from one thing or the other will soon be healed and feeling good.

Jeri your vacation sounds like it was amazing even with your injury.

Joy I see you are your usual upbeat happy self even if you aren't getting all the things you want to do as fast as you would like. You know your body so well and take rest days when absolutely needed. I've missed getting your early morning e-mails. Not sure why they quit coming. Please try again and if it bounces back into your email box please let me know and I will resend it to you.

Anne, lovely to see you back. I hope your workload is not what it used to be and that you are feeling good about the new job.

Judy, I see you are finding retirement busy!! Hope DH heals quickly.

Hi to Caz, Cat, Patti, Lynette and all othersI haven't mentioned.

I really have to run gals, its a drizzly day but I must get back out there and get the tomatoes, cucumbers and onions out of the garden as the forecast is for freezing temperatures starting tonight or tomorrow. I was out there this morning and had to come in to warm up my hands, gloves aren't too much good in the rain!!!

Have a great rest of the week and weekend everyone. I likely won't have a chance to post again until next week.

Back to work tomorrow and on 5 day stretch, will continue with morning Pilates surprising how challenging I am finding the videos but good. Visit this morning to check drying of kitchen wall and slight improvement but adjoining lounge wall will now need stripped back to brick 2ft up. Never ending. But grateful for our health and it is just an inconvenience. Sorry for those with health issues pain is so exhausting.

Feeling sympathy for those with pain, especially the shoulder issues. So true that growing older is not for sissies! And yes, those "little things" that always seem to need to be done can certainly add up to fill the entire day! And that's the kind of day this is. So I need to keep moving! Take care, all!

Good Morning Ladies,

I am up early today as I am taking my oldest daughter to the pain clinic for lidocaine infusion. This is the first of this type of treatment for her pain and I am praying it will work for her. It is so hard to watch your kids in constant pain and my daughter has suffered for over 2 years now.

It is going to be a gorgeous day with the return of summer like temps and an abundance of sunshine. That is a plus to make my day run more efficiently!
Not sure if I will be allowed in with my daughter during her procedure so if not I will take advantage and go out power walking. If I can stay with her, the power walk will come later when we get back home and I will also be heading to the therapeudic pool for my shoulder today. Range of motion is coming along and the arm is getting stronger but the pain persists in hanging around. At lesat this pain is tolerable on most days and evenings when it is worse.

Sending best wishes to everyone for a great day. I want to thank everyone for your continued support, personal posts to me and goodies and all of your prayers. They are making a difference in my recovery and it is a positive difference.

Hi Girls
Patti glad to hear it hun.
Anne you'll be living with dust for a while yet emoticon
Joy emoticon on your streak! emoticon
Jeri welcome home, take care with your hip.
Judy hope you got your errands done. How's DH doing?
Susan good to see you posting, glad you took a rest day, but I do understand and hear you about diverting your thoughts from the pain. I fell over 4 weeks ago and had an x-ray last Thursday, I looking on line on my patient notes and although nothing is broken I'm nursing a rotator cuff degeneration problem. Trying to get a doc's appt, if I can't see one on line today I shall phone and say doc wants to see me re the results (which she did tell me) and will they book me in. I@m guessing physio.
Cat mismash days are quite nice now and again.

Conservatory windows are done, now we do the guest room, then a major clear up today.

Hope everyone is having a great week so far.

Welcome back Jeri, glad to hear you had a great vacation.

I am hanging in there with pain control. Usually it is worse in the evening hours and I try my best to divert attention from it by walking or cycling. It helps but I can't work out all day. Today has been a rest day and much needed after yesterday. I went 7 miles of power walking in the morning followed by 2 hours in the therapeutic pool working out. After dinner hubby and I took the dogs for 2 miles. Today I felt done in so felt a rest was needed. Have guests coming after dinner for coffee tonight.

Have a great evening everyone.

Welcome back, Jeri. Vacations are pretty awesome, but do take care of that hip! Another gorgeous summer day here. I need to do some errands today that hubby usually takes care of, but I'll need to fit them in!

Good morning. I'm back at work after a bazillion days of the best vacation ever!! I blogged about the experience. I'm pretty sure my hip has a stress fracture, but I am not going to go find out. I have had enough broken bones, I know how to rehab a stress fracture. Just ride it out for now. If it gets worse, I'll go to the doctor. Even with the hip pain, I would do this trip all over again.

Good Morning All! Rainy day here, but mild. Still more busy than active; but working on it. The hooping is helping. Today is day 43 of the hoop streak. A minimum of 10 minutes, usually 20 minutes, last night did 40 minutes. Felt good. Still the most fun exercise on my list! Smiles.

Good morning Girls
Patti good morning to you too- hope you're having a good week.
Anne with the hassle you're having I'm glad you're managing to focus on exercise at all.
I know what it's like living in as you are at the mo- takes me back to when we were renovating a property back in Harlington and it went on for months. Keep up a good routine for your own sanity LOL
Joy glad you're safe hun, heard from my cousin in Florida last night and they're safe and out of harms way for now. I'm an early bird..what can I say? LOL
Judy glad it went well and you're home.
Cat would you ever make elderberry wine? I'm told it tastes wonderful.
Maye must have been quite something to watch the pelicans.

Well another busy day today helping DH with the windows, harder to do and fiddlier than we hoped too...........lots of cussing from DH by the end of the day yesterday LOL
A short cycle and some yoga first though.
Have a good one everyone emoticon

It hasn't been all work and no play. Managed to get out for a long bike ride with a lady friend who was looking for something 'active' to do. That was Saturday. Today I managed to drive out of town to visit the Lockport Dam and watch the pelicans fish for their supper. The weather has been beautiful. Sunny and reasonably hot. A tad too windy for my liking but how can I complain when I turn on the TV and watch what's going on in the world? Hope everyone stays safe. Have been adjusting to the routine of being back with the children at school. I really appreciat all the hugs I get.

ANNE!!! Welcome back. Hope you have had a good summer and didn't work too hard.
Today has been busy. Hit the gym and walked the dogs and cut, cleaned and sorted more elderberries. This time I am freezing them to deal with later.
Made a trip to Costco and did some laundry. But I never got to the house work that I had planned yet dreaded to do..............tomorrow??

Oh, I thought I had posted here at least once that is not showing up. Home from surgery and he's doing well. Have been out of my schedule, but today he is pretty self-sufficient, so I have more of "my" time back! Thankful for the beautiful day here, especially in light of what I've been seeing on Weather Channel and CNN in Florida. Those hurricanes just seem to go on for so long - I can't imagine listening to the wind howl for days!

Good Morning All! Nice day here, we in Central KY are safe from the storms. We will get some rain and wind in the next few days and it's looking like the heaviest of that will be sweeping a little West of us. A lot from FL have migrated to KY to wait it out. Just terrible in FL and AZ!
I will be running errands and meeting a friend for dinner today. Hope to get some exercise in this morning.
CAT, I hate office work too; would have never cut it as a career. I get it done so it can't nag me.
Lynette, glad you are back! Hang in there.
Lynette's comment on hearing from me every morning is in reference to my TIME FOR JOY that I email. Just a morning picker upper that also lets family and friends know all is well with me since Sugar and Xena are not likely to do that. If it doesn't go out--someone checks.
Sometimes it's just a computer problem. Anyone else that wants it just sparkmail me your email address; of course, then you will have mine too and I'm fine with that.
CAZ you brighten my mornings! You are almost always the first Sparkfriend that arrives in my email box because of a post. ANNE, good to have you back too.

I spent hours working on computer/printer problems then on getting house warranty documentation all done and sent off.
I forget how grueling office work is and I am glad I don't have to do it any longer (at least for someone else)!
Have a great evening.

Good Morning all! Glad to see some drifting back as summer ends; missing Verna too. Group seems to be dwindling. I can only hope it's because life is good and computer time short.

All is well here and I slept great last night. News from FL is not good, not yet sure how it will affect us. Wind and rains by Tuesday are predicted. Today has started out beautiful. Had a fun weekend. No work done and I don't care. Sensible on calories, I need to work harder on aerobic activity.

Everyone, stay well, keep moving and be happy. Hugs.

Joy sounds like you had a terrific day yesterday. I keep to friends blogs and team message boards too, the rest (Community feed/home etc) just don't appeal.
Lynette wanted to wish you well, I hope the tests prove nothing is wrong, or that if there is it's manageable and treatable.Good to see you posting again.
Cat hope you slept well last night.

Got loads done yesterday and Pete caught up on some of his outside jobs (mind you he didn't venture out til gone lunch, spent time on the computer designing the new bathroom on a 3D viewing program he's found- fun playing about on it to see what works and what doesn't) and within 2 hours we had rain. I'd warned him all morning but he said it would hold emoticon
Beautiful morning this morning but my bloody shoulder is really giving me grief so keeping to core and LB workout (gingerly does it) and some cycling (not holding the handle bar with that hand). It can be done.

read back quite far to see what folks have been up to and it sounds like health is a big concern all around. Sigh, that's what getting older brings, I guess. I have to see a gall bladder surgeon and my gyno to investigate more after ultra sound and CT scan. GP doesn't think there is cause for alarm so I just keep reminding myself that I will cross bridges when and if they come.
Spending much less time on Sparkpeople. My weight is up some but health and happiness are the focus rather than just the number on the scale. Big thank you to Joy for the daily gem in my inbox to start the day in a happy way.

Good Afternoon All, Took a road trip this morning with DD and SIL to take some things to new home of DGS and his gal. Dresser, dryer, rocker, kitchen things--started stuff. Nice family morning followed by lunch. Just catching up here. Glad to see you back Anne! You've been missed.
This and my friend feed are the only places I check in anymore. Just not enjoying the rest of the site like I did and really need to cut back on my computer time. Intercepts healthier choices.
Mayie, I hope work goes better; I know you enjoy the kids and they need people that do. Be well and safe everyone. Hugs.

It has been a while since I came to the team Summer has flown by. I will try and catch up with some of the team feed and blogs. Weight has been stable and kept up my fitness. Missed the team members updates but not the more general Sparkpeople I am going to revisit and see how it feels after a break. I will post a blog later about my summer. Hope everyone has a good day

It is never a good thing to let others take advantage of us, Mayie. I hope you get your due for your work. Smiles might help!
We actually got some rain here overnight and today. Not much, but enough to cool things off and push that dang smoke out. It is supposed to come back.
CAZ, listen and be careful.

Good Morning All, Good day yesterday. Relaxing, but did get a lot of little things done and slept well. Up showered and dressed early and ready for a fun GGS day! Weather here has been beautiful; rain won't arrive from Irma until Monday night. Stay safe everyone and pray for those that are in harms way.

Morning guys
Joy good to catch up on the "need to do" stuff, great that you had company to make it fun.
Cat horrid to be living the smoke aftermath of the fire, I keep wondering what else is going to befall the USA, fires/hurricanes. I swear the 4 men of the apocalypse are standing in the wings this year, the whole world is in crisis in one way or another. Too depressing to think about.


Maye Cleaning windows is hard on the arms, can understand your reluctance to do them again, but well done!

Got my first ST challenge for a team on BLC 35 under my belt Wednesday only to told yesterday not to lift heavy weights, seems I may have a cracked bone in my shoulder.
I went to the doctor for a medication review (standard procedure over here every so often) and mentioned my arm was still giving me grief 3 weeks on from a fall.
She immediately gave me paperwork to take to James Paget Hospital X-ray department there and then and said "go now!. It's only 4 minutes away.
Got there, got seen straight away (was home after just an hour from seeing my GP) and the radiologist said she couldn't see anything too suspicious but not to carry anything heavy with that arm but to keep it mobile- no sudden moves.
She's sending results to GP and I am to book to see her in a week's time- so been looking on line for a slot.

Just stopping by to check on you ladies. Busy as usual. I managed to sleep through the night but still not jumping up at the sound of the alarm. Once I'm at the school to greet the students on the first bus I am usually in my cheerful mode. I do enjoy this half hour activity. Then started cleaning all the windows in the rec room in the apartment block next door. I've never had to do the windows before and it took me a solid two hours!! They look great! I don't think they've been done since the new windows were installed three or more years ago. The down side is getting paid for my work. They whine about how the Club doesn't have much $ but I worked really really hard and did a much better job than regular window washers. I so rarely praise myself but in this instance I deserve the praise. Since I have never really enjoyed cleaning the rec room, this will be the last time I do it if I do not get extra for my time on the windows. I have to learn to say 'thanks but no thanks.'. I don't need monkeys on my back and this job is like that.

Hi everyone.
I am sitting in my chair watching FOX, laptop in lap, charging my FitBit1, and just resting.
I took the dogs to the groomer this morning and that just exhausted me but I had to get out and walk before resting.
The smoke is still in the air but not as intense as previously since there is a bit of a breeze.
Enjoy your day.

Good Morning All, I'm enjoying an unscheduled day today. House and yard need attention. This little guy is such a blessing, but I need a break too. Happiness is an Amazon delivery, dog food ;) ! He settled down in there with a couple of throws, a pillow and his library books. Works for me! emoticon
Once it drys out, heavy dew and temp in the 50's, I plan to get in some yard time. This morning time in the kitchen and on the house. DGS will be back tomorrow then I have 3 days off. Hope to take a road trip with DD and see my youngest adult grandson in his new place. Moving out on his own. Loving living in the country. I would hate the commute, but they don't seem to mind it. My kitchen weeding this weekend was to help him get his equipped. emoticon He's got sticker shock at what groceries cost! But, he's doing it! Helping in my yard:

They are all growing up so fast! I'm blessed that they are all willing to come by and help me, they too grew up in "Bear's Room". Alas, today the big 4 are busy active adults; as they should be! I think this one will be the first to marry. Time will tell. Enjoy your day!
